We have a worldwide reputation for ground-breaking teaching and research by leading academics. More than 75% of our graduates receive a First or 2:1 and we're first in the Russell Group for graduate employability. With its unique attractions, famously warm welcomes, and global reputation for sport, music, architecture and culture for you to explore, there's nowhere quite like Liverpool.

My master’s has exceeded my expectations with its high level learning, support, great diversity of students, and professors who are experts in their field. I like that the city is relatively small so I can get to most places riding my bicycle, yet there is always something happening here it’s never boring.
